In the past quarter, user uptake of the Watch grew by over 50% compared to the previous year, and Apple said its heart rate monitor is the most-used unit in the world.

They're also now notifying you when it detects that you have an elevated heart rate but you aren't actually being active.

Apple Watch Series 3 will ship with WatchOS 4 that comes with more advanced activity tracking; including more detailed heart rate monitoring.

Apple might have one more trick up its sleeve at this evening's iPhone reveal.

Two versions of Apple Watch Series 3 will be available, one with cellular and one without.

The cellular feature was also demonstrated on stage, with an actual phone call being made through the Watch.

Apple has been trying for years to revolutionize TV in the same way it changed phones.

The Series 3 takes the same phone number as one's smartphone, according to Gizmodo, adding that the watch is available September 22 for US$329-$399, depending on cellular capability. The Watch will use a separate connection when away from the phone, but it will still use the same phone number so that messages and texts all get to you regardless of whether you have your phone or watch with you or not. The brand is further giving an impetus to health and fitness via the Apple Watch. Siri works faster than ever before.

The next generation Apple Watch will finally let people leave their iPhones at home. That's accomplished by doing cool things like making the whole display the antenna.

The Apple Watch Series 3 is virtually identical in size to the Watch Series 2 ($529.00 at Apple) but has a new, red digital crown and signal meter, as well as a built-in barometric altimeter. Whether it will be ready in time for the Apple Watch 3 is unknown.

Originally, Bloomberg reported that Intel will be supplying the LTE chips for the new watch, a continuation of Apple's quest for separation from Qualcomm as its primary modem supplier. The original Apple Watch started at £299 and there is a possibility the Watch will struggle to sell if Apple price it any higher. 12 event, taking place at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California, are the iPhone 8, iPhone 7S, and the Apple Watch 3. "Carrying the Apple Watch will be something we look at as we expand of our device portfolio".
